My husband and I purchased a motorhome several years ago, he

My husband and I purchased a motorhome several years ago, he was an Agent Orange 100% disabled vet. When he became sick and died I could no longer make the payments so volunteer called and ask them to take it back which they did. I had been making $300 a month payments on it. When the sold the unit they said it did not bring enough to pay it off and now have a judgement against me for $50,000. I am a widow on a fixed income I don't have the money to pay it off, I offered to pay $300 per month for five years and they turned it down, I again made an offer of $400 they turned that down as well. They said they would get the money from me one way or another. In the meantime my home is paid for I transferred it to a friend in hopes they couldn't touch it. Now he won't return it because he says he is keeping safe for me. They are going after it and say I must appear in Miami at their offices to answer questions under oath. Yes I have a nice retirement but when I pay my bills I have nothing left over. I purchased a condo in Panama City Beach, FL in 2012 from the VA their lawyers told me to stop making payments which I did. I want to know can they get my house, do I have to go to Miami to answer their questions under oath will a notary do just as well. How do I get my house back into my name. I'm under so much pressure I don't know where to turn

Tortious interference, Defamation, Abuse of process... I put

Tortious interference, Defamation, Abuse of process...I put on a sporting event at an Indian Reservation, which is sovereign ground an not bound to the laws and rules of the California State Athletic Commission. A high ranking officer with the commission deliberately tried to destroy my event. He called athletes, coaches and trainers backstage after the event started, telling them they will be preeminently suspended if they competed in my show. He called officials working the event threatening them with a lifetime suspension if they work the event. I had officials and ahtletes leave in fear of a suspension. This caused my show to come to a stop and took us over an hour to regroup. The show never finished as we had to cancel it before the end. I have received many complaints, had to return ticket money and the resort is upset due to the show and complaints. My name and company where discredited all over social media which is devastating in a grass roots sport like MMA. Jason

My partner has hired a lawyer and I cannot afford a lawyer. I have advised her lawyer that I will be representing myself. I have sent her lawyer a number of emails and they have never responded. Does the lawyer have an obligation to reply?There are no children involved. She served me with a court order to vacate In 24 hours and I was out with my belongings in less than 24 hours. In the midst of leaving I had 3 policeman and a police helicopter hover above and then they tell me I had to stop what I was doing. I was following the court order; please tell me what I was doing wrong.Do I have any rights at all?Does her lawyer have any obligation to talk to me or respond to my requests?

I'm representing myself now that my attorney just left the case and am not prepared at all. My attorney basically disappeared after he made some kind of deal with the defendants to get out of the case and I just served the defendants two weeks ago but haven't yet received their response. However, I did just receive their first Request for Production of Documents, First Request for Admissions and First Set of Interrogatories. .. About 100 pages of them and the questions seem completely absurd and have nothing to do with the case. How much information am I expected to provide? Is there a limit to the extent of information that I should be expected to provide? And is it normal to dump all this on a person before even providing an answer to the original petition?
